What’s our favorite activity to do during the summer? Movies in the park! When you spend more than half of the year indoors because of the cold and snow, being able to watch movies outside is definitely a rare treasure that many of us try to take advantage of as much as possible. Whether it’s classic movies, old time favorites, last year’s blockbuster hits or foreign movies, there’s something about watching movies outdoors that is quite magical. Lucky for us, we live in a city that is always on the rise. Everywhere you go, there’s always a fun-filled activity happening. Movies in the park is no different. Montreal has amazing parks in the city that host movies in the park every summer.
Lucky for you, we’ve done some research and have gathered up all the parks in Montreal that will be hosting movies in the park this summer. Best part? They are free! So leave your wallet at home (unless you want to buy some popcorn and food to snack on during the movie). So, make sure to take note of these names and locations because we guarantee that you will be attending at least one of these parks this summer.
